    It doesn't bother me at all. I just watch them do it.

    With the advent of the newer SMALLER needles, it's hardly noticeable. HOORAY for science.

    Can't watch. Need to be laying down. Haven't passed out - YET! Needlephobia is a real thing!

    I watch the entire process-but then I am a licensed Phlebotomist. I have never practiced though,other than my Internship. If I were to leave my full time job to practice,I would have had to accept a per diem position (something I did not know before going to school). Anyway,the school I attended really focused on painless blood draws,and I never hurt anyone while drawing their blood. And with the blood draws I get at least 4x per year,I have yet to have anyone hurt me!

    I am a wimp about having my blood drawn.

    I close my eyes until after they are done and have put the band aid or whatever on it.

    But when I enlisted in the Air Force they made me a medic anyway.

    I have a huge vein in my arm and I watch exactly what is going on.

    It does not bother me one bit.

    I’ve had it done so many times that I joke with the person doing it. Never bothered me as long as I can remember.

    My reaction is to watch every move they make. Make sure they use a NEW needle out of a sealed package.

    I just had a blood draw this morning. The 60 seconds for the actual procedure was a totally painless non-event. The 15 minutes of paperwork required to get it done . . . agonizing!

    I don't like needles, never have. In my earlier days I would pass out. I began giving a warning to the person drawing blood about my possible reaction. Most didn't believe me until I hit the floor. Most of the time they have to stick me several times and after the 2nd time I usually pass out. Now days I give them one chance and then I leave regardless of the outcome. We have one testing facility that has great people drawing blood. They are the only ones I go to anymore.

    I really don't mind...I too,like to watch the process just to see how well my blood's whizzing about my body.

    ...but it's a bit demoralising when the doctor says ''Just a little prick''. That doesn't help my self-esteem at ALL.

    No big deal, this is nothing that goes on in the mess of the world today.
